Amokachi twins.

Daniel Amokachi, former Super Eagles striker has declared that his twins have preference to play for Nigeria instead of Tunisia, the country of their mother.

According to VanguardSports, Amokachi said his boys had turned down the opportunity to be capped by Tunisia, adding that the twins playing for the Super Eagles would be his dream and that of the boys’ mother.

“Definitely, that would be my dream, their mother’s dream, even their dream because their heart is with Nigeria,” he said.

He maintained that he remains hopeful that call would come up for his twins soon to play for Nigeria, after all, he himself has remained Super Eagles’ number one fan, he said.

“I still have that patriotic zeal running in my veins like in the days I played for Nigeria,” Amokachi, fondly called “D Bull” in his active days said.

Furthermore, the USA ’94, France ’98 and Korea-Japan 2002 World Cup star said he hoped to see his twin sons follow the path he has threaded, by playing for Nigeria, as they hope to.

As for their current career, he disclosed that they were doing well in their present club in Turkey.

“They are doing pretty well in Besiktas, they are with the U23 team, and we are trying to see if they can play the professional angle of it because, in Turkey, they leave the foreign slot for professionals. Right now, however, they are working very hard and we hope that soon, they will get the opportunity to play in a place where they can give a good account of themselves,” Amokachi said.

He used the occasion to pray for the Super Eagles players who have already qualified for Russia 2018, wishing that the entire squad would remain injury free in order to find themselves in good form before the tournament.
